The State of Michigan ended public assistance for 810 recipients in 2013 due to their winning at least $1,000 in the Michigan Lottery. The state says it “saved” taxpayers two million dollars.
If they cared to, state officials could save taxpayers 261.5 million dollars by NOT funding a hockey arena for the billionaire Illitchs.
The state doesn’t call THAT welfare, but it is! Corporate welfare from a bankrupt city!
